Louis Vuitton Speedy 25 Handbag Cake

We got to visit the very trendy W Hotel in Hoboken NJ to deliver this Louis Vuitton handbag cake, which is a detailed replica of a Speedy 25 model in Monogram Canvas. We cut all the handles and trimmings to look like the real cowhide leather, but of course all edible. The alternating chocolate fudge cake and vanilla cake layers were filled with Madagascar vanilla bean buttercream and chocolate mousse. The birthday party was held in the Chandelier Room.
